Financial Aid for International Students
Need-based financial aid opportunities for first-year international students are limited and at present; there is no funding to assist international transfer students. International students should be prepared to finance, either privately or through a sponsor, the full cost of their Notre Dame education. The International Student Certification of Finances must be submitted at the time of application for admission, illustrating and documenting sufficient financial support to meet the projected cost of a Notre Dame undergraduate education. The International Student Certification of Finances is available from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Notre Dame offers merit scholarships to a limited number of international students, accepted for admission as a first-time incoming freshman, who demonstrate exceptional accomplishment, leadership, commitment to service, and intellectual promise.
Notre Dame’s limited number of merit-based scholarship opportunities for international students are highly competitive. Ranging from $5,000 per year to the full cost of attendance, these scholarships are typically renewable for four years and recipients may be invited to participate in leadership development and enrichment opportunities as an additional benefit of their award.
Selections for all merit-based scholarships are made as part of the admission process and no separate application is required for consideration, however, eligible students may be contacted directly with a request for additional information (e.g. resume, phone interview, essay, etc.) prior to selection. Recipients of these awards are notified of their selection in early April. Please contact your international Admissions Counselor at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Hesburgh-Yusko Scholars Program
The Hesburgh-Yusko Scholars Program is a comprehensive merit-based scholarship and Program that seeks to attract, encourage, and equip extraordinary students who will have a transformational effect on the Notre Dame community, the Church, and the world. The Program cultivates visionary leaders in the image of Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C., the former President of the University, an eminent educator, and a tireless advocate of social justice.
A total of 25 admitted students will be named Hesburgh-Yusko Scholars. The Hesburgh-Yusko Scholar will receive a $25,000 merit scholarship to be awarded annually for up to four years of undergraduate study for a total award of $100,000.
